Summary

An ongoing partnership with Royal Collection Trust brings a masterpiece by Sir Anthony van Dyck to Hull for the first time.

Van Dyck’s triple portrait of Charles I, begun in 1635 and finished by June 1636, portrays the King from three viewpoints, each with a differently patterned lace collar and coloured clothing. The unusual format chosen for the portrait was due to its proposed use as a reference work for the Italian sculptor Lorenzo Bernini to create a marble bust of Charles I.

Van Dyck’s Charles I marks the second of five exceptional Royal Collection Trust loans secured for the Ferens between 2017 and 2021.
